Vandana Shiva and the Seeds of the Sri Lankan Farming Disaster

1 Comment

For decades now, we have been told by NGOs such as Greenpeace, well-meaning but uninformed celebrities like Mark Ruffalo and the threat to global food security herself, Vandana Shiva, that organic farming is more sustainable and produces comparable yields to conventional farming methods. We all, including myself, want this to be true but deep down we all know when we see the premium price tag on ...

Is Glyphosate Probably Carcinogenic? Probably Not! 

1 Comment

Original published by James Gurney on the now defunct TLONs and reposted here. In May 2015 anti-GMO lobbyist and ignorance profiteers were handed down some glorious news. The World Health Organisation (WHO) had just declared the Glyphosate was probably carcinogenic. Finally validation that GMO’s are evil and Monsanto is trying to rape mother earth for every last cent. I read this with some ...

Prince Charles is a threat to the health of the nation

3 Comments

Whilst is easy to dismiss Prince Charles as a lingering relic of an archaic hierarchical class structure with no real clout other than being a talking head for people who fear a technology they don’t understand, the truth is that for decades he has exploited his privileged position to attempt to influence Government policy and nowhere is this more apparent than his promotion of alternative ...

Prince Charles is a threat to the health of the nation

4 Comments

Britain is famous for many things – fish and chips, grey and gloomy weather, our previous penchant for colonialism, and of course the Royal Family with Queen Elizabeth II ruling over us since taking the throne in 1953. The political system here is a little confusing as we have a ‘constitutional monarchy’, where the supreme power held by the monarch is largely ceremonial with actual ...

Capitalising on Corona – Vandana Shiva – #1

4 Comments

In recent months, quacks and charlatans of all kinds have been rubbing their hands with glee, as a novel coronavirus – which at this moment in time has no vaccine or specific treatment – brings the world to its knees. In an attempt to capitalise on this pandemic, these self-proclaimed experts both rely on, and amplify, the general public’s growing angst, whilst simultaneously shoehorning in ...

The Great Non-GMO Project Verification Swindle

0 Comments

Did you ever wonder why products with the Non-GMO Project label don’t say “contains zero GMOs” or “GMO-free”? It’s because the company doesn’t want to mislead the consumer!!! According to the Non-GMO Project’s own project standards, a product can be contaminated with up to 5% and still have a Non-GMO Project Verified label slapped on the side of it. Call me crazy, but surely the ...

The Non-GMO Project EXPOSED!!!

5 Comments

Whether on a box of cereal, carton of eggs, or on the side of a chocolate bar, labels like “organic”, “free-range”, and “gluten free” are everywhere these days. They are, at least according to the manufacturers, there to help consumers make an informed decision when it comes to their purchases. One label that recently has seen a meteoric rise in usage is the “Non-GMO Project ...

Why Does Greenpeace like Butterflies?

0 Comments

In the past, I have asked what appears to be, at first glance, two very silly sounding questions toward Greenpeace. Why do they like watermelons? And why do they like grapefruits? As nonsensical as these questions sound, they are, in my opinion, the most important ones to be asking the organisation right now. This is because they show Greenpeace’s opposition to GMOs to be based on ideology, ...

No, a New Paper Does Not Show That Glyphosate Is Harming Honey Bees

0 Comments

New study published in reputable journal finds that Monsanto’s global weedkiller harms #HoneyBees. The paper ‘#Glyphosate perturbs the gut microbiota of honey bees’ reports that bees fed glyphosate at concentrations chosen to mimic environmental levels lose beneficial gut bacteria, which then leaves them vulnerable to deadly infections. Glyphosate, arguably the world’s most hated chemical ...

Fact Checking March Against Monsanto Protesters (FULL VIDEO)

0 Comments

Over the past few years, I have been attending March Against #Monsanto protests in the UK in an attempt to gain an insight into why so many people are against this one company in particular. It became apparent very early on, whilst attending these protests, that the majority of people in attendance were not there to protest against the agriculture company Monsanto, but instead to protest against ...

Six Degrees of Pseudoscience

0 Comments

Those who make a living spreading bullshit and misinformation are a very small incestuous group. What I always find fascinating is that when I find a new pseudoscience proponent to shoot down with cold, hard logic, and indisputable facts, they are always in some way connected to someone else I have previously talked about.  1 – Gilles-Éric Séralini – Author of the highly ...

Biting the Hand That Feeds You – Those Who Oppose The Green Revolution

0 Comments

I started off with the intention of recording an eloquent video about those who oppose the green revolution? but it turned into more of a rant. I am lucky enough to live in a part of the world in a time where I would have to go out of my way to experience the physical sensation of hunger. It is a luxury that few in history have had, and one that I have never taken for granted, however, some do. ...
